Now I understand. Yes, the two major versions cannot be on the same

I was seeing a similar issue with xbean, since newer versions of that
use asm4, even though there is a jar called xbean-asm{,4}-shaded. As you
said, you disallow such jars altogether as they contain essentially
private copies of the asm code that is now immune to upgrades to the
system asm packages.
